yeah if you are going to buy a sound card then don't go with anything less than the XFI.

o lord anthrax, i have some crappy logitech 5.1 speakers, but iwth my X-Fi's they sound so much better even thought i have crappy speakers. so its still worth spending money on a soundcard even though you don't have very good speakers
